Green Moms Carnival

Hi folks, in case you're gathering fabulous ideas as you get ready for the first day (some friends of mine in year-round charters in the District have been back for three weeks! and the teachers are at their desks for sure) -- don't forget to submit entries to the Green Moms Carnival. Send 'em to greenmomscarnival@gmail dot com by Sunday, September 7th for entry in the 9/8/08 carnival! We all want to know what eco tips you've been rustling up for the lunchbox. If you're a blogger, send the link and a description, and if you're a blog reader but want to participate, send me your text and I will post it for you, 'cause yours truly is hosting. Many thanks again to Lynn at Organicmania for kicking off this group of partyin' ecomammas. Enjoy your last few days of sunshine and freedom....

I have been agonizing over what to write... this is one time of year that really hits the pocketbook and my green standards! Schools are just so fussy with those supplies lists! I am looking forward to this month's carnival, I am betting we all have tons of ideas to share. Thanks for hosting!!

Eco Burban Mom - I hear ya. Those back to school supply lists are the bane of us all... Tiffany at NatureMoms wrote a whole post about substitutions and even how she refused to bring in ziplocs. I was just talking about it with another mom this morning - we are going to raise the issue schoolwide via the PTA rather than having individual parents negotiate. Maybe too late for this year, tho...
